CONWAY, Ark. -- Police charged a mother and her twin 13-year-olds in the fatal beating of a woman on a city street.

Police spokesman Lt. Chip Stokes said the three family members were taken into custody on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of Altellia Givan, 42, shortly after 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

"From what we have gathered, there was a fight at the residence and the suspects chased her down the street," Stokes said. He said witnesses told police Givan was allegedly beaten with pieces of lumber or tree limbs.

Evelyn Ticey and her twin boy and girl were being held at the Faulkner County Detention Center, a police dispatcher said. Stokes said the prosecutor's office would decide Monday whether the children would be tried as juveniles or as adults.

The investigation was continuing.
